Something seems to have shifted. Usually when spam arrives, it’s some automated crap about v1@gra, but it seems that a few prominent tech bloggers have started getting much more unpleasant things in their comment feed and in blogs about them recently that’s causing them to freak out. And frankly I don’t blame them.
There’s probably source material in the action for a novel but cyberstalking in public blogs just seems wrong. I’m all for digital liberty but in a free and friendly society and not one that’s filled with cowards and FUD-mongers.
